a lot further to go. the white house is saying unemployment could hit 10% this year. major garrett is there tonight. unemployment would have gone up last month at the feds counted the people who have given up or stop looking for work, which is often the case. >> that is right. the labor department decided that about 797,000 americans stopped looking for work. that shrank the labour force and the percentage of those jobless became smaller, dropping 1/10. if you put that 797,000 discouraged workers back in, the rate would have been 9.8%. shepard: it may not seem to make sense, but they have done it that way for years. at least the measurement is consistent. >> the measurement is consistent. some people quibble. one of the top economist for the labor department in the bush years said there's nothing wrong with this approach. >> it is not funny. the labor department goes out and count the number of people who say they're in the workforce and looking for work. when people are discouraged, they drop out of the labour force. >> 5 million americans have been unemployed for 27 weeks. that i
